Estamos a un par de semanas de que vea la luz “Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance”, el nuevo álbum de Belle And Sebastian, y la banda escocesa continúa fuertemente con la promoción de este material.

Hace unas semanas Stuart Murdoch y compañía presentaron ‘The Party Line’, primer sencillo de este álbum, y el día de hoy han dado a conocer un nuevo tema titulado ‘The Cat With The Cream’.

Belle And Sebastian también presentó la letra del tema:

“The Cat with the Cream” lyrics:

Sitting at the old kitchen table
Peace and health and dreams
Stretching out in the darkness
Mother’s up the stairs with her ageing new boyfriend
Cathy’s staying in to make sure nothing happens
All aboard the freak parade
I cover up my head and pray
I’m praying for the light
Down amongst the old city chambers
Men in frocks debate all the policy changes
Everybody bet on the boom and got busted
Everybody bet and in the government trusted
Grubby little red MP
Yellow flapping hopelessly

Tory like the cat with the cream
Tory like the cat with the cream
I studied you in history
I studied in the library
In days of old when knights were bold
They’d settle it with sword and shield
In days of old when knights were bold
It’s settled by the king

Praying for a friend is contagious
Specially when it comes at the old kitchen table
Listening for the swoosh of his quickening paces
Watching for the smile on the bravest of faces
How I wish you’d read to me
Verses rich in swallows and trees
Get me though the night

Waiting at the old kitchen table
Listening for my code listening for my instructions
Surely now I’m here, I am destined for greatness
I want to be the Queen pulling kids out of rivers
All aboard the freak parade
I cover up my head and pray

Praying for the cat with the cream
Praying for the cat with the cream
I studied you in history
I studied in the library
In days of old when knights were bold
They’d settle it with sword and shield
In days of old when knights were bold
It’s settled by the king
It’s settled by the king
It’s settled by the king
It’s settled by the king.

“Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance” verá la luz el próximo 20 de enero, a través de Matador Records.
